– It was intense, with days of giant waves in Nazaré. Because of work, I said a bad goodbye to my family, I ended up spending little time with them. I still managed to go home later and sleep with the kids. And my wife also came here to spend these days in Nazaré with me – said Pedro Scooby.
After surfing in Nazaré last weekend, Pedro Scooby needed difficult logistics to run out of Portugal and face 17 hours of travel to reach Brazil and enter the confinement of the BBB.
A freesurfer adept, Scooby had an eventful season. In December, he took the highest score and the outstanding award of the competition in the Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge, organized by the World Surf League. The wave was touted as one of the biggest of 2021.
– Now the expectation is to relax because it was an intense season for me, I think it was one of the best seasons of my life. I lived historic moments. Now it’s time to go there and relax. And live there intensely what is to come.
